A large folding tactical knife with the manual LAWKS safety innovation, it's specifically designed for one reason: to say sayonara to any evil that comes your way in close quarter battle environments. The Otanashi noh Ken is designed by the venerable James Williams of Encinitas, CA. Longer than the Hissatsu Folder, yet slimmer to carry than the popular Heiho knife, the Otanashi noh Ken gives you exceptional concealment options and superior blade penetrating ability. The blade of the Otanashi noh Ken is laser engraved with Japanese kanji that means The Silent Sword, a fitting name for a knife designed to defend quickly and quietly. This blade also comes with a G10 handle for unmatched grip and a clip that allows for deep inconspicuous carry. You'd expect nothing less from a designer who has extensive classical Samurai training.
